What should I do next? I'm a lost noob.

13 replies
I have no money for investments. Maybe to the limit of like 50 bucks usd.

I have spent a couple weeks researching and preparing a website, and getting it primed for success. It is a review site. The Real Reviews buy Josh Denn

The problem is, lets say I actually do create a review for a product.
How do I SEO it?
Do I create spun versions of my review and xrumer/senuke blast it a bunch of links to my website (in a pyramid) or do I create a unique article that would actually give useful info, but irrelevant to the review, and blast that around the web with my backlinks?
In other words, does it matter if the backlinks that I am generating are 100% relevant to the actual target money page?

FYI I have xrumer and senuke x. And the Best Spinner.

That being said, could you please give me a little pointer here; I am STUCK and I have no idea what to do!

    First of all, unless you did it on purpose the word "buy" in your title really should be "by".

    Second, I would suggest you get reviews up on the site before you start concerning yourself with backlinking. Learn some basic SEO to use in your content and start reviewing products.

    Last, after you have about 20 or 30 good reviews up you can start working on the backlinking. At this point my recommendation is to always write useful information that is unique and relevant to the review. For example, if you review a golf product put out articles that have to to with how to play better golf.

    You need a better strategy, quality handwritten articles are best, don't spin them use a human rewriter. Have a network of blogs both free and self hosted with some articles on them deep linking into your main site.

    Use some tools to help you find good places to link to those articles but indiscriminately blasting them with xRumer will hurt you.

    Go for unique, quality content that offer value to the reader. Your articles should wet your readers appetite--without giving too much away--draw them in so they will click to your product review. If you give away too much info in your article, they will have no reason to click through to your product review. For this reason, my articles tend to be on the shorter side (about 350 words - works for me) where as my actual product reviews are like 450 words. You want to shoot for between 400 - 450 words.

    Also, when it comes to backlinks go for quality over quantity. Being that you said you are lost, have you had any actual training, or are you trying to do everything on your own? If you are, you should reconsider. Think of it as an investment in yourself and business. In order to take advantage of all niche blogs have to offer, it's crucial you lay the right foundation. With the holidays coming up, you also want to get everything up and running ASAP so there are no missed opportunities.

    I recommend Unstoppable Affiliate by Andrew Hansen and Josh Stanton. They have good reps and are known for putting out high-quality materials. They use a practical and realistic approach to teach you what you need to know so you can get up and moving. In addition to the basic course, they also offer an optional coaching program you can take part in.

    Good luck.

    Try to launch your own WSO. It's one of the easiest and fastest ways to make money online. The good thing is that there are even free WSO's on how to create WSO's haha.

    Good luck!

      What a silly comment - no help to the self confessed newbie at all!

      If you have nothing useful to add to the discussion you really should not make ridiculous suggestions.

    Boy is that thing ugly, wow. Ok well I think the header logo is hideous and the theme overall seems a bit off, the blog post title for instance is overlapping, and the blog text itself is all messed up, links didn't turn out right(am using chrome), and you have no pictures(people need pictures). I'd stay away from xrummer if you care at all for your site, it's complicated to use and basically just forum comment spams through proxies(runs server side). You should consider a different theme too, and look into various wordpress plugins like DIGG DIGG,SEO Ultimate,VSF Simple Stats,Easy AdSense Pro(if you want that),Akismet.

      Well done on making a plan and actually taking action on something. Just one criticism from me... the grammar seems a little 'off' in your first post and doesn't really make me feel that excited about the site, do you think it may be worth considering hiring a writer to write your articles for you?

    I would start by making a decent site. It looks, without trying to be mean, horrible. The layout is confusing, the logo looks like a 6 year old drew it.

    How can anyone think you're a legitimate reviewer when your number one goal is to "make money", a quote from your site? Yes you added "by helping people", but you DON'T need to let people know that your primary goal is to make money by helping people.

    Hey Josh,

    I commend you on taking the initiative to take control of your future by starting your own website.

    Before worrying about backlinks you should work on adding some valuable product reviews to your site. This way when you start backlinking people that visit your site can have information to review and decide whether to subscribe to your website.

    Also ensure that you do spelling and grammar checks on your articles before you post. If you want buyers to take you seriously you need to provide a professional image.

    You may also want to review your headline banner. The background color may make it difficult for persons with poor eyesight to read.

    If you have no money you may want to try selling some unwanted stuff on ebay and start a newsletter to increase traffic to your site. Maybe you can sell some of your recommended products to make a little extra cash to reinvest into your business.

    One more thing, there is a watermark going across your title. You may want to get that corrected.

    Hope this helps.

    Josh,

    Looking at the source code did you mean to "buy" and not "by"?

    <title>The Real Reviews buy Josh Denn</title>

    You need to populate the site with unique content if you don't have the time get someone to write it for you.

    You can have good content written at reasonable costs (warrior forum has individuals will to do this for you at a reasonable cost)

    Then come back to the forum and ask what next, just take it one step at a time, but plan what you need to do and target each stage with a "completion date" and don't deviate from that date (or sooner) then move to the next step.

  • I recommend you not to do black seo hat. You'd better write down the unique articles, and I think you don't need to make backlinks at the beginning. Wait a little and if you'll have unique and valuable posts, your site will be at first positions in Google SERP

    Hey Josh, I commend you for your efforts so far. My advice would be to take all that has been said and apply the ones you feel are applicable to you. The one thing I would say to you is this is the worst you can be, which means from here on you can only improve and become better at it.

    Get Rich Formula

    a = A Amazon Product
    b = Product Review of a
    c = Four general articles about the niche a

    Success = a + website + (b+c)

    * Glassess off and taking a slurk of coffe*

    Dude, It's that simple. Find a product on Amazon that people are screaming for review at google (getting around 1-2k monthly review searches on google). Purchacse a review domain like oxyeliteproReview.com (oxyelite pro is the product). Install WordPress, install a few seo plugins like All-In-One Seo, Cache and Google SiteXML.

    Write one review article of the product + four articles about the product in general.
    Include your amazon affliate links in the articles, get Google to index your website and articles and juice some juice with blogposts, article markerting, profile making....

    I just leached a strategy that is generating me $5000 dollar-checks every month hands free.
    It's that simple. Really

    Mike Tyler.
